    I track via My Fitness Pal as well! And as for the being a boredom eater–that is my to a tee. The only way I’ve found to combat it is to distract myself. Read a book, take a walk, ANYTHING to get away from the food.

    1. Lisa Eirene

      YEP! Keep yourself busy. That’s my secret too.

  2. Beth @ Beth's Journey to Thin

    I’m not that good with tracking except that I post most of what I eat on my blog. When I followed weight watchers closely, I used the e-tools to track my food/points and that worked really well. I tend to get super obsessive about things so I’m trying to back down a bit – and so far its going fine. I’m maintaining, though I would like to lose a few more pounds eventually. 🙂

    Cayenne and hot sauce make everything better! Well, except for coffee….

    I track with Livestrong. I go through periods where I don’t track at all, and then I will go back to tracking. I actually kind of like doing it because I am a numbers gal.

      I’m a numbers gal too, which is why it seems to work for me.

    I use the LoseIt app on my iPod Touch. LOVE it! It has a similar format and also has a cute graph to log in your weight whenever you want. I limit myself to 1 official weigh in each week in LoseIt but I weigh myself pretty regularly right now as I am working more aggressively right now to lose these last 10 pounds. 🙂

  5. Notes from the Fatty File

    I have fallen off the calorie-tracking wagon and need to get back on it as I find myself getting cocky and eating a lot of things I shouldn’t 🙁

    Speaking of eating, you know what’s AMAZING in mac n cheese? Chipotle peppers, the kind that come in the little can. One little spoon of the sauce that comes in the chipotle en adobo mixed with TJ’s 4 cheese mac n cheese is seriously heaven on a plate. Drooooool.

    I use Calorie King but it doesn’t have a lot of food that I need to enter so almost everything is custom.

    Good call on the Boredom eating. I don’t know what my problem is but I was making Hween treats today and candy just went automatically to my mouth. It didn’t get out of control but I hadn’t had any intention of eating chocolate. It’s like my body is possessed, and my hand goes to my mouth before my brain even gets a chance to kick in!

    PS I LOVE cayenne on almost everything, especially popcorn!

      That sounds good on popcorn!

    Hi! What HRM is that? I’m looking for a really simple one that measures heart rate and shows calories burned. Despite working in IT, I find my husband’s HRM to be really confusing and can never find the calories burned after a workout LOL

    Nevermind, I’ve found it! It’s a Polar F7 and is on my Christmas list 😀

      I actually have a link to the HRM monitor on the front page of my website. It will take you to!

    How do I track my food? By keeping a Food Journal on a online community where I can get tips and motivation plus support. There is only ladies on the group which is great for me. Here is the community:

  10. Jennifer is Always Sick

    I have the same issue – I get sick and can’t do anything really. And I’m sick often, so I will start a new, healthy weight loss / get healthy program, and I’m excited about it, and then the kids and I catch something that makes us all miserable, and then, we’re finally well again, and I don’t get back to the program. 🙁

    As far as eating when I’m bored – absolutely. I’m busy busy all day long, and then in the evenings, my husband and I sit and watch TV together…and the snacking begins…and it’s always bad stuff. Ugh!

  11. Kel

    I use a website called to track my calories as well as track my nutrition goals. While there is no app (yet) I love the community on the website, as well as getting the nutrition stats. It is one thing to eat a certain number of calories to maintain my weight, but I want to be as healthy as possible doing it. Stop by and check it out! I also write a weekly column on the site called TGIF with Kel.

    Thanks for sharing MyFitnessPal – so far it seems much easier (read: less time consuming) to track food, and I like the report at the end better as well.

    Thanks! 🙂

    I’m also seriously wanting a heart rate monitor.
